My advice? I would turn towards your first instinct which for me says something about his body that believes it’s poison. Not saying medication isn’t the answer, but could mean it’s time to find a different one – or a more “invested” specialist. No doubt expensive no matter which way you go about it unfortunately, as a patient myself (32 years old) I know that personally. We (family) made the mistake of sacrificing cost for medication and I paid deeply for it. Try to involve your son in the decision making process, you already know he’s smart enough. 👍
